OCN BLizzard VS Swan Valley weekend games

There’s an old saying in sports, the last few minutes of any game are the most important and that’s exactly what cost the OCN Blizzard the game on Saturday. the OCN Blizzard were leading the swan valley stampeders 4-2 into the last half of the third until a few costly mistakes were made causing the game to go into overtime friday, loosing 5-4 to the Stampeders.

 

On Saturday the Blizzard were leading 4-2 until the final minutes when Aiden Litke was put into the penalty box for a major crosschecking and misconduct penalty. This left the Blizzard with only 4 men on ice and ultimately cost them the game as Swan Valley was able to pull ahead 5-4 in the final minutes of the 3rd period.
